This review is from: Murphy Brown: Season 1 (DVD)
I purchased this DVD set on the day of it's release in Feb. 2005 and I'm still waiting for Season 2! We had to wait 3 years between releases of seasons 1 and 2 of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" now MTM is being released a season every 6 months! Like FOX who released a deluxe 1st season set of MTM, I'm sure WB expected much more sales of the "Murphy Brown" 1st season and it failed to life up to studio expectations! FOX found a cost effective way to release all the seasons of MTM and satisify all of us loyal fans! I think WB needs to follow the example of FOX and other studios who release complete series sets on DVD of marginal shows! Complete episodes on DVD with no extras is better than nothing and those of us who care to complete our collection can do so! I was very pleased with the DVD set of MB and I noticed a few technical glitches that other viewers have commented on in other reviews but, overall this is a nice presentation of a brilliant, clever, funny, well written, well acted, sitcoms in TV history! Warner Bros. please commit and release the remaining seasons of Murphy Brown on DVD and preserve this classic for all us fans!

There's this thing about music costing a lot and taking time to clear for TV shows. I can't speak for Mary Tyler Moore, but if i remember correctly, Murphy like Motown and Berry Gordy doesn't play with the royalties so that might be it. I'm waiting for Third Watch and I don't think they had a lot of music, so I'm just guessing.

Some of us are waiting to buy the complete series! I don't want to a couple of seasons before they release the whole set! I'll wait and buy all the seasons at once.

Hi Sunshine! I'm curious, did you ever get the entire series? Have you found it anywhere? I've been trying to buy all of the seasons for several years with no luck.

Happy New Year! I was wondering if you ever found the entire series, all seasons? I've been wanting to buy them for years, you can't even find reruns on tv.
